KRONOS Vol III, No. 4
Editorial statement . . .
IT'S 1950 YESTERDAY
Early this year, KRONOS Press and LAR Research reserved space for six one inch ads in Science News; the purpose was to advertise Velikovsky and Establishment Science and The Age of Velikovsky. The ads were accepted and the two books were advertised alternately for each week of the month of February. Then, quite abruptly, Science News unilaterally terminated the ads after they had run for only a third of their allotted time. Written notice of the cancellation was sent to the Angelyn Advertising Agency which had placed the ads. That letter is here reproduced:
The Weekly Summary of Science
To date, all efforts to persuade Science News to recant its censorship have failed. We can only wonder, therefore, at the extreme insecurity of the scientific community. If Sagan, et al, are so right and Velikovsky so wrong, why were two book ads deemed so threatening that they had to be exorcised from the pages of Science News? Whatever the reason, we are certain the late Harlow Shapley would have been most pleased.
At the present writing, KRONOS does not consider the case closed.
